HTML Map

We focus on solutions that are practical and applicable in the industry. We employ a range of techniques in building and developing competence including instructor-led, lab-based training, workshops, mentoring and coaching.

Our programs are designed around methodologies and strategies that:

  • Enhance skill sets that are practical and job related
  • Build “confidence” and transferable skills in “problem solving”, “analysis” and “troubleshooting”
  • Cultivate a mindset that is “results oriented”
  • Achieve lasting results through hands-on “action based learning”
  • Effectively “measure” skills and performance

Alignment with the CCPS Professional Skills Framework (PCF)

The training program content is aligned to the CCPS  Professional Skills Framework (PCF) competence areas; each competence in the PSF is defined by a CCPS “descriptor” which identifies the skills associated with it. The PCF is a structured framework for technical competence development in ICT that identifies critical skills required by industry. It is supported by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) “telecommunications regulator” and is being used as an industry reference. The diagram below shows the Professional Skills Framework. For more information about CCPS, please click here.

What is the National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF)?

The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is a national credentialing system. It trains, develops, assesses and recognises individuals for the key competencies that companies look for in potential employees.

WSQ is based on national standards developed by WDA in collaboration with various industries comprising industry sectoral frameworks which serve to:

  • Professionalise the industry, particularly where recognition of Continuing Education and Training (CET) qualifications are lacking
  • Improve labour mobility allowing companies in growing industries to easily recruit workers with the necessary skills whilst improving opportunities for workers to enter these industries.

The WSQ system is designed to be a practical, accessible and affordable launching pad for individuals to take charge of their own careers and advancement. It is also a powerful business tool for employers to access and maintain a skilled workforce as it enhances their competitive edge and advancing their businesses.

What is the National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF)?

The National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF) is a manpower planning tool that defines the competencies needed and the levels in which they are performed for various key infocomm job roles, thus facilitating skill development and career progression.
The main aim of NICF is to widen and expand the capabilities of infocomm professionals and guide their career development, based on standards agreed upon by the industry and companies. With NICF, infocomm professionals have greater access to training so that they can attain recognised certifications. NICF encourages workers to continually upgrade themselves and develop their vocational competence with specific job roles skills and generic employability skills.

Assessment and Certifications
We focus on “learning through doing” where we measure program outcomes in terms of skills, attributes and underpinning knowledge developed. For most of our technical courses the program outcomes are measured through

  • hands on practical skills such as (troubleshooting a fault within a given timeframe)
  • underpinning knowledge that supports the building of competence – many of these questions are scenario based and require written answers and analysis rather than multiple choice questions
  • continual assessment to ensure that participants are actively involved in the program

This extensive assessment reassures organisations that their staff have the competences required to perform their job successfully. Since the course outcomes are quantifiable this simplifies many internal processes and gives you the information to make the right decisions. This type of assessment is extremely useful for

  • succession planning
  • staff appraisals
  • development planning

Course Schedule

Due to the many benefits of our “hands on” programs our larger clients generally conduct corporate runs of our programs for substantial numbers of staff. In this way we can customise the programs to their specific needs and they build up transferrable skills within the organisation making it more flexible and providing additional career paths for their staff.

General benefits include the building of confidence, analysis skills and critical thinking which are needed in many job roles.
